Advanced Analyze System
Authors: Blizzard
Version: 2.4
Type: Enemy Scan Window and Skill
Key Term: Battle Add-on



Introduction

This script will allow your characters to retrieve information about enemies during battle and show them in a window. It also has built-in compatibility for my "Bestiary" script and allows adding enemies to it only if enemies were analyzed at least once. This script can easily be used for Pokémon typed games.

Author's Notes

Do NOT give enemies analyzing skills! You MUST configure the one part if you have scripts that use dummy elements! Do NOT give your enemies MORE than 8 elements/status effects of one resistance type (e.g. 9 or more elements, that are absorbed), because they won't be displayed. Do NOT use this skill on party members.

If you find any bugs, please report them here:

That's it! N-Joy! =D

Nortos

Calintz

Yes...yes we do know that...
- Then I will probably use this...

Nortos

Nortos

with each other yeah and with almost all scripts cept like CRLS with  advanced CBS or battle commands (though I made mine compatable with a cross command window :))

GAX

Necroposting a script, but with a good question.

I have monsters that would be unaffected by specific WEAPON classes.  I have separated weapon classes by creating an element for each weapon (1handed sword, 2handed sword, Katana, etc.), but I figure it might look a little wierd if the Weapon immunity appears as a status immunity.

Any way to get around this or should I just deal with it and refer to them as "Weapon Elements" instead of "Weapon Classes"?

Rule 2: ShowHide
Quote from: Rule No.2Keep your signatures at reasonable size. The pictures in your signature may altogether be no more than 200kB and take up an area of 1600px2. That means 2 pictures of 400x200 are fine, one picture of 800x200 is fine and so on. Also your pictures height must not exceed 200 pixels, width can be as big as you want as long as your pictures match the other criteria. Every signature not matching this criteria is a subject of the moderator team to remove and leave this rule as message in your signature.

Nortos

Can't you just put that element in the dummy element section? and than write that it's immune to that weapon somewhere else?
Or am I missing the problem?

Blizzard

It would appear as elemental immunity. Well, you'll have to edit the script a bit if you want them to appear as weapon classes. The best way would be to add those elements as dummies and make an addition that displays the weaknesses for weapon class elements. You'd have to copy paste the code for the elements and change the number of pages.

Hopefully it works like usual with the RTAB. I do not see any compatibility issues with RTAB, but I have not tested this, so I'm quite unsure. Just configure it like how you usually configure a skill script like this. (Look in the Configuration part of the script and read the instructions :x).

What's osu!? It's a rhythm game. Thought I should have a signature with a working rank. ;P It's now clickable!
Still Aqua's biggest fan (Or am I?).

LordOfThunder

Hi,

at first: Thanks for this precious script.
But I have a little trouble using it.

I want to have different Analyse-Skills which reveal more or less of the enemy, e.g.

Simple Analyse => Shows only BASIC and STATS
Better Analyse => Shows the above, plus EXTSTATS and XTRWEAK

Since now, I tried to set them via Common Event, made them global variables and have put them in an initialize function with a case-structure inside.
Unfortunately, nothing works. I always get some kind of error.

Can You help me please and tell me how to set the variables when calling a skill?

Thanks so far
Lord

I did not intend this system to be able to create different analyzing skills.
